Each year, Ligonier Valley Writers holds its Annual Flash Fiction Contest. The subject changes from year to year, but it's typically related to the Halloween/Fall season. Contest word count for each story submitted is 1000 words or less. Can you tell a story in less than 1000 words? If you can, when submissions open, be sure to send it in.

We will soon decide a new subject for next year. When we do, we'll announce it here. The contest opens for submissions on April 15 and closes on August 15 each year. So be sure to check back for more information in the future. You just may win one of three cash prizes.
